updating applets periodically...

Hi,

I need to update an applet atleast once in a day. But, whenever I update my applet in server, the user has to close the browser to get the latest one.
Is there anyway we can programmatically remove the old applet from browser cache?
The following code also doesnot help?

<PARAM NAME="cache_option" VALUE="Browser">
<PARAM NAME="cache_archive" VALUE="HelloWorld.jar">

It's really strange what you're going to achieve.
What brings you to re-compile the applet once a day?

Which is your environment?
Are you using the Browser JVM?
Which browser?

Don't think you can do it programatically.
And if you can it'll be browser dependant.
There isn't even a standard way for the user to clear the cached jar.
